Today I realized something new about myself. First though, I need to give a little bit of a back story.
I am super outgoing! I love to talk to people and make new friends. Sometimes it is hard to get me to be quiet. I love to try new things and go on new adventures. I will talk to ANYBODY.
I used to go to group in Logan, Utah. I love my group there. I felt SO close to almost all of the birthmoms I met there. We used to all go to dinner together, we hung out. Wednesday was group day. I loved that day more then anything in the world. It didn't matter what else happened I could vent at group. I was in a place where I felt loved, like I had friends, and I could say anything I was feeling. The day I left Logan I cried mostly because I didn't want to leave my birthmom friends.
Now I just moved and I started going to another group. Today was my first day. I felt so weird. So different and out of place. I was horrified. I wanted so badly to talk and say how I was feeling but I was nervous to hurt anybody's feelings. I wanted to just make a friend that I could share how I was feeling to. I couldn't. I felt totally alone. It was really tough on me.
I realized that my safe place was in Logan. At group. Amongst my friends that knew me for who I was, understood my situation, and would be there to give me a hug when I needed it. I realized my safe place now is at home with Wes and most of the time on my blog here.
So I was curious for everyone else to answer this. Where is your safe place? Email me your answers or comment below!
Thanks guys for letting this be a safe place for me to share! I appreciate all of you who read this blog! Jessa
